Transgender Discrimination Rule Halted by Federal Court

Dianne De La Mare


Judge Reed O'Connor of the US District Court for the Northern District of Texas, has preliminarily blocked part of the Nondiscrimination rule pertaining to discrimination on the basis of gender identity. The Texas judge issued an injunction Saturday against a federal mandate aimed to protect transgender people, finding that the federal health rule violates existing law.

None of the other provisions in the Nondiscrimination rule are stopped from being implemented (Franciscan Alliance, Inc. v Burwell).
